I heard a radio commercial for feedthepig.org last week and decided to review the site over the weekend. The website is sponsored by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and The Advertising Council. The radio spot caught my attention because the idea behind the website is to help educate consumers improve their savings habits and reduce the need for debt. The site has some pretty neat resources, done in a way that is entertaining and targeted for you own situation. There is a "Tween mini-site" included that can help younger consumers to learn about good financial tips. Users can link their Feed the Pig profile with Facebook or their iGoogle Homepage to track what they save over time with the changes recommended.
Teachers, students, and consumers can learn some valuable tips on Feed the Pig. Money doesn't come with instructions so financial education is useful for everyone. Financial education can be a boring topic though and Feed the Pig helps by entertaining and educating at the same time.
